This year marks 150th anniversary of the birth of Frank Lloyd Wright. There are commemoration events to celebrate the anniversary. Since Wright has a connection with Japan, there are events in Japan, too for example in the Imperial Hotel. Wright designed the old building of the Imperial Hotel which is now preserved in Meiji Village in Aichi Prefecture. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the English article but the Imperial Hotel newly opened a special exhibition room of Wright in the lobby of the ground floor. Here is Japanese website.
Wright has several Japanese apprentices and they built great architecture in Japan. This website introduces those works of Wright and his apprentices in Japan. Among them, I visited Takanawa Church.
The church was built by Takehiko Okami, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Japanese apprentices.
There are several interesting architecture around Takanawa.
Here is another work by Wright’s apprentice – Myonichi-kan of Jiyu Gakuen Collage. Wright himself was also involved in the construction.
And here are several links about Imperial Hotel – Wright’s iconic work in Japan.
